Starting from this post, I’ll introduce some general Chinese radicals that frequently appear in Chinese characters. To make it simple for you to memorize, I’ll just simply make a beautiful card with the radical on it’s left, and one English word to explain what it symbolize on the right.
In Chinese, radical is called 部首 bù shǒu or 偏旁 piān páng. The following card will help you memorize the look of the radical and meaning it represents. Thus whenever you encounter a Chinese character with that radical in it, you’ll guess out roughly what it means.
So today we start from the very first one: 讠.
It’s related to “talk“. Characters with this radical are mostly related to talk, lecture, verbal communications. Such as 说话 shuō huà (talk), 讲课 jiǎng kè (give a lecture, teach) etc.
